Inclusion Instead Of Exclusion

Inclusion Instead of Exclusion

I wasn’t much of a reader when I was studying nutrition. We had so much course work and materials as part of the lectures that reading outside of this just didn’t happen. I could probably count on (one or) two hands how many books I read over the entire three years. But when my official studies were over, I started to read a lot more. One of the first books I discovered was Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. It’s an extensive cookbook but referring to it as a cookbook is probably a disservice. The first 100 odd pages is a mini course in nutrition, covering different foods and food … [Read more...]

Finding The Middle Ground

Finding The Middle Ground

I still remember the first Monday after I quit my office job. I was going to be doing this nutrition gig full time and it filled me with a mix of excitement and dread. Even in this very early stage, one thing that I was sure of was that making nutrition a success wasn’t just about nutrition knowledge. It took knowledge of running a business and everything that this encompassed. So I started reading about marketing, specifically Internet marketing. As is common with these things you start getting on more people’s lists and reading their blogs and their emails. Being a rank beginner I … [Read more...]

Knowing What You Can And Can’t Change

In touch with reality

When I was born I was absolutely tiny. The cord that attached me to the placenta had become tangled and the nutrients weren’t making their way through. I was so small I could fit in the palm of my Mum’s hand and spent the first couple of weeks in an incubator. As I child I really wasn’t into food. I’d probably be described as a fussy eater but I didn’t care for eating the way that others did. I’d run around a million miles an hour and eating just seemed like a waste of time. (Things have changed since then). So when you combine my poor start in the world and my lack of eating, it’s not … [Read more...]

Re-Opening To New Clients

New Clients

There’s no shortage of information on the internet about health, nutrition, body acceptance, intuitive eating, or whatever it is you’re interested in. Even if you’re just following my stuff (which is highly unlikely), I put out a blog post and a podcast show each week. And this is just the minimum; I often write more than a blog post each week. And if you also follow my Facebook page, I’m sharing an article or two a day. If you’ve only been following me for a short time, this is still a lot of content. If you’ve been following me over the long haul and you also multiply this by all the … [Read more...]
